Project Overview

Winged Monkey is an application that provides an elegant and intuitive user interface for self-service consumers of cloud resources. It offers simplified interactions for non-administrative users, and allows users working with multiple cloud providers to enjoy a common user experience.


This is the first release of Winged Monkey. It supports the viewing, launching, and terminating of OpenStack servers. Future releases will support additional providers, each of which will utilize the same Winged Monkey user experience as OpenStack.
